Untrustworthy staff at front desk, guy tried to play a trick for extra payment. typical well dressed black guy thought i was a tourist when in fact i come from cape town and was very much aware of the fact that i had already paid a deposit. tried to get extra cash in. another clients car was broken into during the night.

Lovely hostel, really nice rooms. Really helpful staff who gave us loads of info without us even needing to ask, the tours are pretty good also! There was a pool table and table football which is always great.


very nice and helpful staff


It is as good as a hostel can by in Knysna. It's a sleepy town where people in the hostel are just passing through. You can have fun at night with the staff and the other guests. The staff try their best to create a good atmosphere and they do pretty well. The Wifi is good, it's clean and the people are friendly. It's a solid hostel and if you're travelling through Knysna or just looking to relax for a few days, it's a good choice.
